Frantsevich Institute for Problems of Materials Science celebrates 60th Anniversary

October 22, 2013

The Frantsevich Institute for Problems in Materials Science (IPMS) based in Kiev, Ukraine, which was originally established as one of the leading Soviet Union research centres dedicated to special alloys and Powder Metallurgy, recently celebrated its 60th anniversary.

The IPMS later became the leading Ukrainian centre for advanced scientific, technical consulting and contract research and development in the field of advanced materials, including nano materials. Its division dedicated to the materials science of particulate and composite materials and coatings has specialised in the development and production of cutting tools, wear and corrosion resistant coatings using detonation powder spraying techniques, ceramics for electrical application and the production of high purity metal and ceramic powders.

The IPMS has been publishing the Russian-language peer reviewed journal Poroshkovaya Metallurgiya since 1962. The journal covers the theory, manufacturing technology, and properties of metal powders, powder forming processes, the technology of sintering and thermo-chemical treatment, the properties of sintered materials and testing methods. An English-language translation, Powder Metallurgy and Metal Ceramics, is published by Kluwer Academic/Plenum Publishers, New York.
